continued the discussion in the new york post. >> you were again, critical, of the obama administration. >> i have never seen nor perfect candidate and i was not perfect. i will always speak out, but if you read the article today and my other utterances, it has always been stated that i am still on the obama train. i will explain why. >> we would definitely like you to do that. if you address the question of the red line. tell us what you said last week. >> i was incensed, as i believe every american was, what occurred in both egypt and libya. in egypt, the embassy was overrun with cops. they did not ran away -- run away. the libyan cops ran away, didn't protect the embassy and worst of all, the ambassador was killed, so to speak. i don't know exactly how. along with three other consulate personnel. i did not believe the american response was adequate. the american embassy in egypt initially put out a statement that was denunciatory of the video that some muslims were saying was the reason for the attack. it was not sufficiently denunciatory of the egyptian government, in my judgment. h

is true, correct? >> yes. that's correct. they're not true. instead, what the obama administration policy calls for is a waiver program where states can apply for a waiver from work requirement rules but in exchange, they have to come up with some kind of plan to more efficiently promote work. what we found is that only 29% of people receiving cash assistance were meeting that work requirement when obama took office. >> you even talked to a former congressional aide who was instrumental in crafting that legislation and he told you it was misleading. >> yes. yes. he said he didn't agree with the obama administration changing the rules on the work requirement, but he said that the ads claim that this was gutting welfare reform was very misleading. >> do you recall, jim, any example, i know the campaign hasn't gotten back to you but you've been with the campaign now, do you recall any example of a correction that they've made or taken down an ad? >> i don't. and you know, keep in mind the very first ad that came from the romney campaign during this campaign cycle was an ad that took presiden
out of welfare? >> i think what the obama administration has said is that no, they're trying to give governors the flexibility to increase the amount of work that goes into receiving welfare benefits. you're saying you don't buy that. >> no, no. you always have the capacity to add work. there's never been a requirement that you can't have more work. the requirement that they're waiving was saying that people don't have to work to get welfare. that's the change that they proposed. i disagree with that direction. i think the president also -- i disagree with the direction on the work requirement as it related to food stamps. taking work requirements out of government assistance is, in my opinion, a very bad course to take and creates a culture of dependency. we help people who need help. we want to help people that need help. but the idea of removing work requirements i think is a mistake. >> keeping them honest, as you just heard, jim acosta say politic fact gave that rating a pants on fire. the "washington post" gave it four pinocchios and quote, a mitt romney tv ad claims the obama

to respond? the national debt has gone in the nearly four years of the obama administration from more than $10 trillion to now more than $16 trillion, an increase of $6 trillion. >> well, first of all, wolf, let me just say this. the two wars have cost us an enormous amount of money and the loss of our brave servicemen and women as well. so that added to the national deficit. and one other thing that we should talk about in terms of the national deficit, part of it is that we're not bringing in as much revenue as we should be bringing in to pay for all the things, the services and programs that the american people continue to desire. there's no question under this president that we've seen, you know, the most significant budget cuts also in the history of country. discretionary spending is at its lowest in 60 years. taxes are also at their lowest. but the one thing that the democrats have not done, we haven't walked away from the table. we haven't pointed fingers and said it's their fault. we're all in this together. it's time republicans roll up their sleeves and come to the table so we c
that the obama administration was sticking to. listen. >> this was not a preplanned premeditated attack that what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction. >> what our assessment is as of the president is in fact what it began spontaneously in benghazi as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in cairo. >> but as fox news reports, the administration knew within the first 24 hours that it was a terrorist attack. so why were americans left in the dark and how could potential coverup impact the election? here for fair and balanced debate is fox news contributor angela mcglowan and mclavigne. this seems like a big problem for the president. >> i don't see it that way. look, the president came out the morning after the attacks on september 12th. came out to the rose garden and told americans these were acts of terror and punished to punish the perpetrators and i have no doubt we will. it does take time t
did mention the world hot spots and the problems bedeviling the obama administration. here is just a sampling. >> a lot of americans, including myself, are developed, excuse me are troubled by developments in the middle east. syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. our ambassador to libya was assassinated in a terrorist attack. iran is moving toward nuclear weapons capability. we somehow feel that we're at the mercy of events rather than shaping events. >> reporter: and mr. romney has argued on the campaign trail for weeks now that with him as president the u.s. will once again return to shaping world events and spreading democracy and the american view rather than passively watching as violence erupts all over the world. jamie? jamie: carl, thanks so much, live here in new york city. jon: a decades-old murder case, jamie back in the spotlight. michael skakel is serving 20 years to life for the murder of a 14-year-old martha moxley back in 1975 in connecticut. he was convicted years after the kill

enforcement one of the reasons why the obama administration embraced it, but it's all about how these things are represented and what they're obligated to say when your pants down. do you believe in enforcing these laws been problematic are not? and when you say -- the whole idea of the. >> translator: is that these aren't the good kids. many -- i think they're right. it doesn't mean that they're a bad kid. community college or maybe you have got in trouble when you're a teenager. i think there is something very disingenuous about the debate we have around us, but of course that is because advocates of destruction debate in the certain white. this is rooted in any kind of believes that our prior to the way that we actually structure the conversation. i think that advocates have structured the conversation very advantageous sleep. >> a couple more questions in the month to cut off. i was wondering if you could and testimonials in terms of looking forward toward the democratic party strength. >> and also the gentleman over there. >> thank you. thanks to the forum today. the panelists. i can gi

"the view" gets him more votes than meeting with 10 or 15 world leaders. and the fact that he's not doing his job is irrelevant. you have to divide it into two parts. there's winning the office and there is actually being president. he's clearly said if i can win the office, i don't care what the rest of you think. let me say, what should really deeply bother americans is how does all this play out in the rest of the world? imagine you were an ambassador trying to explain to the president of egypt or the president of china or
, then. for 10 days after the banghazi attack, the obama administration denied it was a terrorist attack. >> bill: that's a different issue. >> after carney said that morning, okay, now everybody concedes it's a terrorist attack, the same afternoon obama went back to the, oh, it's really caused by the film. i think it's because he wasn't coordinating. >> bill: he was talking about the film today, which is sort of interesting, talking about the video before the u.n. in his speech, talking about how we don't insult -- we should not tolerate insulting religions, yet there was no mention of the fact that ahmadinejad is going to be speaking tomorrow on the holiest day of the jewish faith, yom kippur. he spoke about the insult to the muslim world with this video, but neglected to talk about the insult to jews, while he's diss the prime minister of israel. >> it's worse than that. obama spent three photographs on a -- three paragraphs on the nut cake film that nobody has seen. why is obama fixated on appeasing muslims while attacking catholics? why is that not a topic that ought to be on every
of the obama administration. now, fox news can in fact confirm that within 24 hours of the assault on the banghazi consulate the obama administration in fact knew with certainty that that was indeed a terrorist attack. now two sources also tell fox that u.s. intelligence officials were even aware that the assault was coordinated by al-qaeda-affiliated operatives. all of this was verified on september 12th less than a day embassy stevens, two navy seals, and one other american were assassinated. rather than tell the truth, and acknowledge that the al-qaeda link existed, admit that the president's triumphant killing of bin laden was by no means marking the end of international terrorism, members of the administration chose to lie and initiate what appears to be a widespread cover-up about what they knew and when they knew it. now it's obvious they want us to all to think that al-qaeda is no longer a threat to america. what do they do? they blame the so-called spontaneous event on a youtube trailer. let's take a look at the campaign of misinformation in all the days following this att
